Meet Kelsey

Workforce Challenge

Kelsey was looking to return to graduate school for her masters degree, but was not sure how to finance herself.

Workforce Solution

Kelsey enrolled in the AmeriCorps program, which provides student loan forbearance as well as payment of interest on qualified student loans. In addition to this, Western State in Gunnison allows for a remote education program, as long as she remains enrolled in AmeriCorps. Kelsey will have completed two 900-hour terms as well. This will provide her with over $5,000 in education award she can use to pay for school.

Outcomes & Benefits

Kelsey is attending and has just finished her first semester at Western State. She is studying for her masters of Environmental Management with a track focused on sustainable and resilient communities.
